Artist's Statement

I just love to paint. I cannot remember a time when I did not have a paintbrush or pencil in my hand.

My favorite subjects are the human face and form. For many years, my work focused mainly on women in contemporary settings, breaking the "third wall" with the individuals in the paintings scrutinizing the viewer on equal footing with the viewer scrutinizing the painting.

In 1990, I abandoned the facility of working with my right hand, in order to begin painting afresh with my non-dominant left hand. Accepting the challenge of this new struggle enabled me to reconnect with the physicality of the paint stroke, which had been heretofore subjugated to the rendering, and to redirect my attention on the soul of the subject matter.
